Best Outfit: Gaby Hoffmann wearing a varsity jacket, oversized Mickey Mouse T-shirt, bloomers, hiking boots, and a top-knot might be our favorite look of the entire series' run.
Best Cameo: Melonie Diaz, who cements her status as indie darling thanks to her small role as Jessa's dead-but-not BFF (and, of course, her turn in Fruitvale Station).
Favorite Quote: "Hannah, it's something that happens. It's like jury duty or floods, they happen" --Jessa talking to Hannah about death.
WTF Moment: Hannah taking the lie that Adam's sister told her about a dead cousin with muscular dystrophy (to prove that she's kinda a sociopath) and using it with Adam to help prove that she's not a sociopath (and in the process, kind of confirms it).
Life Lesson: "You think my life is so funny! Let's make fun of the girl who took a risk and put herself out there creatively, which by the way is not something either of you need to worry about because no one wants to see you and you can't do anything." --Marnie telling off her Cafe Grumpy bosses. (And you know what? She kind of has a point. Why do we hate on her for taking a creative risk, even if said creative risk is mortifyingly bad?)
